This supplement contains glucosamine, an amino-sugar from the human body, mainly located in the tendons, cartilage and ligaments. Glucosamine supplementation can relieve the pain, reduce the loss of cartilage and even regenerate the joint cartilage in patients with damaged joints or osteoarthritis. (1)
Another ingredient from this complex is MSM, also known as Methylsulfonylmethane, which has the following properties:
